    "Endurance - The Extraordinary Life and Times of Emil Zatopek."
    (Rick Broadbent, 2016).

    For anyone with a love of athletics, this is the best book I have read since "The Barefoot Runner" by Paul Rambali. Superbly chronologically contextualised, it surrounds the Zatopek's love story by bringing Mimoun, Chataway, Bannister, Jim Peters, Pirie, Kuts and others to life. From the Flying Finns to the Prague Spring and beyond, an absolutely brilliant read.
